I remember November 2007 just like it was yesterday. A late evening, back at my parents’ kitchen, I was working on a freelance project for a small local publishing house from Germany. The company was small with wonderful and passionate people caring about every page of every book that they’d release.
In fact, they were publishing beautiful poetry and incredible fictional books, but as they had just a few dozens of books, they didn’t really have much budget. I remember spending almost the entire night looking for royalty-free icons and fonts that I could use on the site. The community saved me that day, as I managed to deliver on a tough schedule.
